Friday's here again - and you know what that means! It's time to get your whoop whoop on!!
This week, I'm whooping about the progress that has been made on the Helping Hands quilt!
Just so you can appreciate the whole process, here's what I started with early Sunday afternoon...
...which by Sunday night had progressed to this...
All spread out on my den floor. Thankfully, I didn't have husband or granddaughters in the house until Wednesday morning, so I was able to spread this out in the only space large enough for it!
Monday morning I started sewing the pieces together...
A small start at first...
...then most of one side. By the end of Monday, here's what I had pieced together..
...and here's what was left on my "design floor"!
Up bright and early on Tuesday morning, and back to work!
By noon, this is what I had done - a large part of the body of the quilt. Large enough for a top but I still had hand blocks left to add...
And by 5:30 on Tuesday, this is what I had - a finished flimsy! It's so large I had a hard time taking a picture of it - but fortunately it's still small enough to fit on my quilt frame. My goal for this weekend is to get it quilted. I'm pouring through my quilting pattern books to get ideas for all the different spaces I need to fill. I'm planning to leave the hands unquilted, and use background filler patterns to make them stand out.
Can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What are you dancing a happy dance about?
Do share - we want to dance along with you!
(And remember - it doesn't have to be a finish!)
The party will remain open until Sunday midnight.
Be there or be square!
